How to Find the Right Roofing Contractor

Community Reputation

Always choose a company that has a great local reputation. Whether it be a roofing company that has come highly recommended by a friend, a company you found online with five star reviews, or a sign you saw in a neighbor’s yard while they were having work done on their home, seeing an active presence of the company will help you feel secure knowing that you have chosen to work with a well-trusted company in your area. Choosing a roofing contractor that has worked in your neighborhood means that they are familiar with all laws and regulations in your area. When you choose to work with Roofing Doctor, you are choosing to work with a business that has over 30 years of experience working in a small state like Rhode Island. We are reliable, trustworthy and dedicated to exceeding your expectations.


Manufacturer Designations: CertainTeed Select Shingle Master (SSM)

When a company is certified by a manufacturer, it shows that they have reached a high standard of excellence in their field. At Roofing Doctor, we are certified by CertainTeed, a well-respected company in the shingle roofing industry. We have an SSM, or, Select Shingle Master Certification. An SMM shows that the contractor you have chosen has extensive knowledge of everything from installation to quality of materials used. In addition to having extensive knowledge and experience, when you work with a company with an SSM, you receive extended warranty coverage depending on the project. You can be assured that you are in good hands when you are working with a certified roofing contractor.



Not all roofing companies can offer a manufacturer warranty. Being a SSM means Roofing Doctor can offer extended warranty coverage. Always look to see what kind of warranties the roofing company offers for their own work and examine the length of the warranty. Will they come back to do repairs for free if something goes wrong with their work for a certain period of time? It is important to take note of what benefits you will receive even after the project is installed and completed. 


Better Business Bureau (BBB) Rating

Finding a roofing contractor that is BBB accredited with a high score gives you confidence in their work quality through a reliable, unbiased third party. The Better Business Bureau confirms that the company you are choosing to work with is accredited, has an A+ rating, has been in business for 30 years, and has all of the necessary insurances.  It also allows you to read reviews and examine customer experience before working with a specific roofing company. It is always beneficial to do some preliminary research before partnering with a contractor for your upcoming project. Click here to view our BBB Listing
